Corte Vetusto, meaning ‘ancient cut’, is a celebration of the unison between nature and ancient craftsmanship. The Espadin is respectfully hand-crafted in small batches and distilled to proof. Purposely agave-forward, Corte Vetusto Espadin showcases the magnificent variety of flavour within the plants themselves and the impact of terroir upon them. So well in fact, that this mezcal was awarded Gold Outstanding (93+) and the Mezcal Trophy at the International Wine and Spirits Competition 2017.
Appearance: Crystal clear.
Nose: Hints of black fruits and raisins with subtle earthy smoke.
Taste: Vibrant and sweet agave with herbaceous notes.
Finish: Butterscotch and dried fruit leading to charred oak.
Overall: A mezcal to savour as it takes you on a journey.
